On February 11, HUD has announced a PROJECT BASED RENTAL ASSISTANCE (PBRA) INDUSTRY DAY to be held on Friday, February 26 from 9:30am to 4pm.

In addition to HUD Headquarters, interested parties may attend at HUD offices in San Francisco, Fort Worth, Chicago, Atlanta and New York.

The purpose of the day as described in the announcement is:

Key to successfully structuring these services will be our ability to tap the creativity of the private sector. The intent of this Industry Day is to solicit best practices and ideas from all stakeholders. The concepts and ideas emerging from this forum may be used by HUD as part of the overall plan for implementation of the new process. Please note that this Industry Day is being conducted to obtain best practice information and is not a pre-proposal conference for the planned procurement. HUD will not address any procurement specifics or provide detailed information about the scope of the planned procurement at this time.

This one-day event consists of an information session on the history and future of the PBRA program from 9:30 to 1:00 followed by brief one-on-one sessions with interested firms from 1:00 to 4:00pm.
